Soundproof curtains normally act as blackout curtains Because they're so massive and thick, soundproof curtains are very effective blackout curtains. In fact, you might even see them advertised as blackout curtains, instead of sound proof.
In the same way, how can I soundproof my curtains? A truly effective soundproof curtain will be heavy, tightly woven, and will go from ceiling to floor and several inches past each side of the window. The key here is that it covers as much area around the window as possible so that the folds in the curtains can create as much of a seal around the sides as possible.
In addition to, can heavy curtains block sound?
There are many curtains or window treatments that are marketed as sound blocking or sound proofing, but have little impact on noise! ... True soundproofing curtains are dense, heavy, and often have an extra middle layer for the purpose of blocking sound. These middle layers can be made with vinyl or cloth materials.
What fabric absorbs sound best?
A non-porous vinyl, leather, or acrylic-faced fabric will reflect much of the sound energy, reducing the effectiveness of your acoustic drapery. Choose a fabric that could soak up and absorb water, or has a plush, velour surface. If cost is a concern, you could choose a less expensive fabric with 24 oz.
